BBC spins Pobol y Cwm online

A Welsh soap is getting an online spin-off.

BBC Cymru Wales is producing PYC, which is based on characters from S4C soap opera Pobol y Cwm but sets them within edgier storylines.

The standalone webisodes, which will be published on the PYC website at 21.00 between April 8 and 12, will not affect the storylines running concurrently in the parent soap’s episodes.

Viewers will also be encouraged to discuss events on Twitter and Facebook.
